He added, "I used to watch our(Caledonia) matches this season on the net( while I was in England and I was very impressed with the way we have played," said the former national U-20 captain.

He continued, "We were always a great team in the past, but just that we lacked the desire to win matches not having won anything in the recent past. But this season we have players with the drive and passion such as Marvin Oliver and we are getting the results."

He(Wim Rijsbergen) said that I would have a fair chance just as any of the other players. I want to be on the national senior team and I would do my part as a player but the rest is up to the national coaches," ended the Kingston University student.
